That's a timely story Brian and something that we should all be fighting against....... maybe the IAC as our national body could enquire and represent its members to the 'authorities' and help clarify certain issues that have been raised here.... maybe even make a feature in the FVM or website? I fe...

Hoping to get some serious filming done next week in London, (I'm a simple northern lad ye know) but I have heard that there are restrictions on where you can film, and the use of a tripod ..... obviously using a tripod on busy Oxford street is a no no !!! but if you ...
